How to apply a huge amount of nodal forces/moments in SDC for Femap?

A Multi Nodal Force tool is created to speed up an application of nodal forces/moments to your model. When a huge amount of loads should be applied, it can be time-consuming to create them one-by-one. The Multi-Nodal Force tool supports import from Excel and can perform this work automatically.

The following example demonstrates how 10 loads can be applied in 4 simple steps.

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Execute Multi Nodal Force from the FemLoads context menu:
